Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX It seems like a viral and it will resolve spontaneously in a few days. Firstly she needs medicine (like syr ondem) 2.5 ml for vomiting. We need to stop the vomiting, since it may worsen her cold and she may aspirate vomitus. For cough and cold, syrup ceterizine 1.5 ml can be tried. It can be taken 2 times a day. It will help control her runny nose and sneezing etc Sualin tablets or syrup can also be given. It will help clear the mucous in throat. She also needs syr crocin 2.5 ml 4 times a day for fever. Let me know if I can assist you further. Dr Vaishalee

Also i Live in London, so can you suggest some medicines that i can but with our prescription or is there a way you can provide prescription. I am looking for ondem, Sualin alternatives that i can but over counter. Thanks and Regards XXXXX

Brief Answer: Hi again Detailed Answer: Hi again Ondem syrp you wont find in London. Sualin you may be able to find at an Indian grocery store. In London there would be same medicines available with different brand names. I think Syrup cetirizine must be available as Syr Reactine. Vicks dayquil is also good. Crocin must be available as tylenol. Tylenol meltaways are a good choice if she likes. You may remember the generic name paracetamol and buy medicine accordingly. Ondem is ondansetron (generic) and will not be available over the counter. Though there are good anti-emetics available over the counter like Syr Gravol, etc for children. You may check at your local pharmacy for alternatives available. Hope it helps. Dr Vaishalee
